My first rose is…

My first rose is opening. Climbing rose Zephrine Drouhin, an 1868 antique rose, and one that could have been planted in 1885, when my house was built. I'm hoping to have it climbing all over my front porch within a few years. Welcome, summer. Don't get too hot, too fast. :-)

  1. Beautiful! But please clarify…did the rose come with the house and you were saying hypothetically when it could have been planted. I. e., did you plant it?

  2. I planted it. 🙂 We do have one shrub, a burning bush, that we think has been around since the house was built, based on its size. The rest is probably all more recent.
